Stayed here for one night and won't be coming back! I arrived in Blenheim at 12 and wanted to check in / leave my bags however I could not do anything until 4pm meaning I had to take my bags with me! When I finally checked in, the showers were not clean nor the toilets. When I asked about somewhere... More

I really wouldn't recommend staying here when there are much nicer working hostels around Blenheim. To start with something positive though, the staff is very friendly and helpful and will provide you with a list of vineyard contractors when you check in. But onto the negative. The long-term rooms are so small. I was only sharing with one other girl,... More

Hello and thanks for your review, We noticed that the shower area was quite busy during peak hours so have opened up an additional shower for guests staying in our cabins .If everyone respects each other and takes reasonably lengthened showers then the flow is pretty good but unfortunately since we live in a communal environment people are unpredictable and...

We stayed for 3 weeks and did some vineyard work in the Blenheim area. From the reception we got a list of contractors and had a really cheap weekly rate for staying in our campervan. The hostel sees itself as a working hostel. This is almost the case. Only the showers are not even close to ones you would have... More

We stayed for three nights to do the vineyards and it was a great location. Its basic but clean and very safe. Only downside is the railway track next to it, but you will get that with all the backpacker locations in Blenheim.

I arrived at the backpackers on my own, had no idea where to stay up till this point and no plan as such. The owners were so helpful in sorting me accommodation and finding me some work too. Barry the Manager pulled out all the stops with regards to beers and general great hospitality. The campsite is very clean, bathroom... More

Cons: Literally right next to the train tracks. In peak weeks of backpackers working, this hostel is busy and the hot water is gone after a long days work, so don't count on it. Also, one or two of the three showers were almost always broken. Office staff is rarely in the office and sometimes hard to find. Kitchens are... More

We came across this urban gem completely randomly. We were welcomed by the staff and fellow guests with a bbq and drinks. This campsite/motel is a home from home. When it comes to facilities they have everything a backpacker could possibly need and all for a reasonable price! This is a great place to meet other travellers and get an... More

I stayed here for some weeks during my time working on a vinyard. Felt like a home from home, comfortable environment & good facilities, It was a wonderful experience. In the most part, this was down to the people. Always a friendly social atmosphere. The staff are incredibly helpful & went out of their way to look after me. Also... More

We spent 5... yes 5 weeks in this motorcamp in blenheim while working during the sunny vintage 2013. We were even happier to come back "home" at the end of the day thanks to the awsome staff and good facilities. We were sleeping in our campervan but the kitchen was the heart of many encounters and friendships! Thank you for... More
